Hello to everyone out there in the Wachtel world. I am a new member without a Wachtelhundsad at this time. But working on getting one. I am originally from Berchtesgaden, in the beautiful Bavarian Alps. I am in this country since 1969. I happily retired and live in Cashiers and Asheville, NC in the Western Carolina Mountains. I took up hunting in 2000 and spend a lot of time doing it. I have 2 Boykins which where never hunted. Since I am a partner in a hunting plantation http://www.cedarridgeplantation.com I am now ready for a real hunting dog. On occasions I hunt pheasants in SD but want to experience grouse, chukkar and the rest of the fliers. I have never trained a dog so new challenges arise. I know I will be Wachtel crazy once I have my first dog.
Let me know your experience with these fab. dogs

Chris, welcome to the forum. By all means continue your plan to get a wachtel, but in the mean time how old are your boykins? Boykins are typically great hunting dogs as well and if your dogs are still young and you have access to propagated birds for training it should not be hard to get them started hunting in the mean time. I assure you from experience boykins and wachtels can make a great team.

Hi Chris,
If you are from Bavaria, I see why you are in Western NC. Bavaria is a very nice part of the world.

I live in Southern WV. Our hunting conditions are smiler. You will fined that Wachtel have superb noses and therefor are excellent trackers. They make good turkey dogs and are well suited to Appalachian Grouse. If you are hunting wild forest birds, I feel a flusher is better that a pointer. I speak from experience. My Wachtel is a stout little dog that dives into the thick brier tangles were the grouse are.

I wish you well in your Wachtel quest.
